question about options


Alright I was playing a Baseball Mogul computer game last night and I got to thinking about player options. The way I understand the rule is that as long as a player as options left he can be sent down to the minors without having to clear waivers and that a player can only use up 1 option per year and in that year can be sent up or down an unlimited amount of time. Now I may be wrong on that and if I am correct me but if that is the case, what is keeping a team like the Rays from say using a guy like Price who still has options and "send him down" after every start and "call him up" before his scheduled start and using a guy like Dale Thayer or Andy Sonnanstine who are in the same position out of the bullpen the 4 games between starts. Basically keep 26 guys around and make a roster move every 5 games.
